    Default Help! Gitzo Tripod spoilt. Any spare part?




    Help. my screw broke into half, another half still inside the tripod (pointed by my screw).

    How to fit it? Change the whole tripod? got any spares part?

    I forget the model of the tripod, once i reach home , i try to find the model ( but how to know what is my tripod model, which parts show model number?)
    This tripod i bought 3 years ago, used once and kept it, now try to use, spoilt. very sian. Gitzo should be good brand right? but i only have 1 time experience with this baby. sian

    it is not whether got spare part anot. the problem is how to get out the another part of the screw. if drill, the carbon(from what is i see) will be damage if not done properly.

    Gitzo tripod is on a 5-yr warranty so if it is still within the warranty period, just bring it back to the shop and they can get it fix for you.

    Did you registered online? If so, there should be a record of your equipment and I believe Gitzo tripods will have serial no. on it.
